Cut 3 cheese sticks in half. Combine 2 rolls, press the dough out to be long enough for 1 1/2 cheese sticks. Place 1 1/2 cheese sticks along the center of the dough, enclose the cheese completely. Repeat with remaining cheese and dough.

Combine parmesan and garlic salt in a plate. Roll each breadstick in butter, then in parmesan mixture and place on a sprayed baking sheet.

    This is a great recipe and my family really liked it. I cut my cheese sticks and froze them before making the stuffed cheese bread. The cheese was soft and there was not excaping cheese.
